Acrylics

I was pleased to be asked to hang LARGE paintings at the US Attorney’s office in Burlington this summer.  I chose 5 large landscapes (you can see them on the acrylic web pages) and 6 small pieces – some of which I grouped together.  The hallway wall space is wonderful – especially the curved walls...
I have always loved hand-painted tableware – since my mother had a “Vera” pattern cloth in the 1950’s.  From 1968-2000, I had Italian made plates with bright red and yellow poppies. I find that many of my watercolor paintings are patterns, so when I bought a light-weight canvas tablecloth last week in preparation for a...
